SEGA purchases Relic Entertainment

Well, it has happened, SEGA has now officially bought Relic Entertainment and the rights to the Company of Heroes franchise. A Relic employee has just confirmed it. What does this mean for Relic and everyone’s favorite WWII RTS? Probably not a whole lot at the moment. Most likely this will simply result in a quick, painless re-branding of the studio, allowing them to continue work on Company Of Heroes 2 right off the bat. (Dev, Industry, Relic Entertainment, Sega)

I hoped this would happen say what you want about sega, but the rts they publish are really good, just look at the total war series. Lets hope the other thq studio's found a good new home. R.I.P THQ. Who knows they might revive 40k Dark millenium the mmo is was looking forward to because of the IP.

Dawn of War is my favorite PC game. In paticular DOW Dark crusade , I still play that game today. I don't like the Soul storm Expansion I deleted that cus it just shits the game up.

Dark crusade is My favorite RTS. DOW 2 is good but needs base building man....

Yeah Sega is a great home for Relic. The Company of Heroes franchise is safe, which was one of the games I was worried about when THQ went down the tubes.

In terms of Relic.. Sega makes a perfect place for them to be.

Good luck.

The entire situation with THQ is a shame, but on the bright side, Sega was perhaps the best publisher available for Relic.

SEGA just got one great deal.

I wish Sega was the one getting purchased...
FarCryLover182  +   822d ago
SEGA are worth a lot. They have over 2 billion in cash to spend on whatever.
kalkano  +   822d ago
That doesn't change my wishes. ;)

Relic being bought by the total war and football manager publisher, seems like it was meant to be all along.

NO!!!!!!! South park went to ubisoft, no pc version for me.
Vladplaya  +   822d ago
Now, make new Homeworld already... (don't know if Relic holds the rights though)
